So you ask, how was my week, will my computer died, my car is in the shop, my printer’s drum decided to pick this time to die and my desk chair gives me a sinking feeling every time I set in it. That pretty much sums up this past week. The Lord has given me plenty of opportunity to learn how to shine under adversity.
Honesty demands I admit to a character flaw, yes, those annoying things that keep one from being perfect. I don’t do well in a mess. Confusion drives me crazy. Clutter sends me up the wall. I can’t stand messy clutter or messy confusion. With that in mind I will tell you the NF (Nerve Food) Formula works great. With all the confusion this past week the only two formulas I was able to remember to get down were my Changease & NF Formula.
I’m very pleased with how well my husband and I handled this week of crisis. Not a single cross word passed between us. I’m not saying we were in high spirits but we both were able to flow with the tide, doing the next task to the best of our ability. Becoming unglued is not an answer to any problem and I have learned from experience that losing it is a choice. Yes, we can choose to hang in there or let go and disintegrate into a pile of mush leaving the crisis for someone else to handle. Then, of course, complain about the outcome. I learned a long time ago I don’t make a good victim so I guess I’d better stick around and do it my way.
Crashing computers cause frayed nerves. We knew it was on its last leg and were working to switch it out with a new system. Sadly it failed to last long enough for us to make a smooth transition. My wonderful husband saved the day by adding my old C drive as an additional drive on my new system. This is allowing me to access all my old files.
The real challenge has been setting up all my programs in a new operating system. My old computer was an XP I am now working in Windows 8, I must say I’m not impressed. As in all of life it is best to “not fix it if it isn’t broke” It has taken the better part of this week to load my programs, adjust settings, and find all my important files. Today I can say I’m beginning to feel like me again. I’m sure I’ll begin to find things I like about this new system as I continue using it.
